Kindergarten - Day 80

Day 80 - Wednesday, December 17

We spent the day before making Christmas cards to pass out at a local retirement home:

We talked about the reason behind Christmas cards (what a coincidence) and Christmas cookies!

Solving a Gingerbread Mystery. Hunter did the whole thing with us and then said, "When are y'all gonna do school?" I said, "Son... that was part of school!" He said, "Whaaaat!?" It was a lot of fun.

There were several different mysteries of who stole a cookie. You had to use deductive reasoning to figure out the thief. We loved it.

 Bri's latest chapter book - and Cam Jansen is one of my favorite story characters!

And in our spare time we complete 1000 piece puzzles.

No homeschool stuff today. By this point in the week we had been to three nursing homes and done lots of cool stuff for Christmas. I kept nursery at a local church for their Christmas party and then the kids and I went to a local non-profit's warehouse to volunteer for a couple of hours. So, this week may have been a little lacking in textbook education, but I'm really glad we got to do a lot of community service this week.

Some of our library books this week:
